Valentine’s Day Treats

It’s never too late to make something special for Valentine’s Day! The recipe I made is one of my staples. I found it on the Joy of Baking site ages ago and have been making different variations of the recipe ever since.

For Valentine’s Day, I used heart-shaped cutters to make cheesecake brownie hearts! The recipe was so simple and I just picked up a package of CakeMate Cookie Icing for the red decorations on top.

I doubled the recipe so in total I made 45 small brownies and 1 big one, which my sister stole to give to her bf. In the end, I was left with 28 brownies to decorate and share! I will be giving these to my parents, sisters, grandparents, friends from chef school, and of course, my valentine!

You can find the recipe at http://www.joyofbaking.com/barsandsquares/CreamCheeseBrownies.html

A couple things to keep in mind:

  • I recommend greasing the pan with butter instead of using tin foil. The tin foil often sticks to the brownies.
  • I didn’t swirl my brownies, as you can see. I just put the cream cheese layer directly over top the brownie layer.

I encourage you to try this recipe and provide me with your feedback  on these goodies! Good luck.

Yours edibly,

Elana
